Hi, I'm DeeDee Black. And today, I'm going to show you how to create a side pony with a braid. A reason that you want a side pony is so it can keep your hair out of your face, it's also great for workouts. First you're going to do, is comb your hair over to the side. Since my model has a natural part, I just kept the part there and combed her hair over to the side. Then I'm going to use a bungee type hair tie to secure her hair. First you put the bobby pin in, you do not have to open it. And wrap that around the ponytail clockwise. Once I can't wrap the hair any longer, then I will put in the other pin. Still you do not have to open it. Once the pin is secure, your ponytail is nice and smooth. Then I'll use two fingers, kind of like a claw to separate the hair into three strands. Then I'll braid my three strands around, adding the right side to the left and flipping the left side to the right. And keep repeating this motion until I get to the end if the hair. If your hair is like my model and you have layers. then you can also use hairspray or a little mist of water to keep the layers down. Once you're done and you get to the end, you may secure it with a little, tiny rubber band. As I did, I had a tan one, or you can also use these clear ones, if you don't want to see the rubber band at all. Once hair is secured, then now you're ready to go out for a great workout or a day on the town.
